    Awesome scientific discoveries.

    It's well known thing,afaik since 70x, or may be earlier. We and everything around are existing because the number of particles after Bigbang was slightly more than antiparticles.

    Countries with best food

    Japaneese food seems me the best for everyday life, for long life at all. Vietnam food also is very good and "pure national". Thailand... They cook any food great .

But this will hurt China as well, since USA is a major source of income for them. I don't think that China depends from export so strong as you suppose. Afaik about 10-15% of total domestic production,something like that.%90 of population continue to grow rice almost like in ancient times. And they can spit to computers,modern home goods and other things as long as needed.This is an East,another mentality and valuables.The best example is Japan,I mean an amazing combination of technology and old traditions. You can object that they will lost way to modern war technology.But actually all modern complex armament has a very long production time,and in case of serious global conflict will be over very quickly.And what to do with ~200 millions people with Kalashnikov guns in this situation? Nothing.They will continue to grow rice in Florida.The Chineese civilisation is very old,they lived ~4000 years without US,EU etc.,and will live further if needed. Anyway,they will not go to this possible war immediately. [Edited by - Krokhin on December 6, 2010 1:23:52 PM]

    If WW3 occurs within the next 6 months, thank WikiLeaks

    Quote:Original post by Alpha_ProgDes Out of curiosity, define "legitimate". My problem with the leaks is that it's shedding no light on things to make things better. If this was released 5 years ago, then maybe 1 war would have been prevented or wrapped up quicker than it is now. I dunno, but more pressure would have been on the gov't to handle that correctly. But now, the info doesn't do anyone, any good. IMO. "There is no future without the knowledge of the past"(c)
  5. Quote:Original post by Alpha_ProgDes Could the Obama plan of "spend your way of the recession" actually be better than cutting down the deficit (however harshly)? I can see that with economic and job growth, more tax revenue will be used to pay down whatever deficits we may have -- eventually. I can also see how slashing jobs and raise taxes on an already weak economy will just make things even worse. But is there no middle ground? .... Discuss! [smile] The modern world and economy actually has a pyramidal structure(something like a food pyramid in animal's world).US are on the top-you know themself how much you are taking,how much producing and what is a difference. "Wherever you go,whatever you do", just like in that song.It's a terminal point. What about EU-it's an intermediate in this "global food chain",nothing more.Russia is somewhere on the bottom,something like a plankton.But it is a plankton always remains after the all world's disasters[smile]

    Is it just me?

    I don't thing that teenagers have a brilliant ideas.The true brilliant idea as usualn have a huge abilities for development inside and firstly common sence. The most powerful stage of human's reason progress is laying between 25 and 35. This is my imho and my 2 coins. ................

    Home made silicon chips!

    Quote:Original post by SteveDeFacto Quote:Original post by karwosts In that case I think FPGA would suit your needs well. It won't run as fast as a custom silicon, but you could get something going at reasonable speeds. Once you prove your concept then you can decide where you want to go from there, if you think you've got something worth getting a custom ASIC for. You can buy some cheap student boards from digilent for $50-$200, and use Xilinx ISE Webpack (free) to program the boards. You'll need to know verilog. A circuit board will not be small enough to fit in an animal's skull... You should better think about energy source,connectors and so on.Anyway something will be outside.As I understand inside skull must be only analog part of braingate interface.You can use hybrid circuits technology for inner part.It may have a size 5x5 mm and smaller,but you'll need microscope for soldering.

    Books about graphic programming

    Quote:Original post by Mihulik I know them and I use them. They're definitely useful but are they the most useful ones? I'm not sure;-) Why only ones? The head is also very useful thing[smile] I mean that all this books (Shader X for example) describe mostly variuos methods,invented by other authors.I.e. you can use it,but it will be always "copy-paste" level,no more and without any advantages over other's people work.In my sight the most expensive,but interesting way of learning something is solving some unresolved problem, because you have a very strong motivation.

    Books about graphic programming

    ...and don't forget to download DX SDK samples,tutorials and help,frely. One day(may be not this Christmas,but next) you will understand that it's the most useful thing[smile]

    Spare a moment for poetry!

    This final autumn - not a line, not a sigh. Final songs have fallen with the summer. A farewell fire of the epoch burns out, And we are watching the shadows and the lights This final autumn. An autumn hurricane swept jokingly away Everything that choked us in the dusty night; Everything that pushed, played, glittered, Torn apart by the aspen wind This final autumn. Hungry sea, hissing, gulped down the autumn sun, And behind the clouds You will no longer remember what has been here; You will not touch the dusty grass with your hands. This final autumn. Poets walk away into the final autumn, And you cannot bring them back. The rains only remain, and the icy summer; Love remains, and the stones that rose from the dead. This final autumn.

    Walk Like An American?

    Quote:Original post by AndyEsser I'm not sure the Canadians will agree with you aboot that ;) In my sight one german speak louder that american and canadian together. BTW,I understand english speaking german much better than american. Or may be german speak with Oxford accent...

    Walk Like An American?

    Easy. Russian in US American in Russia In the first case Shwartz speak like american-born russian,because common russian in such situation will say not "hooligans",exactly (may be something like а пидор, долбоеб or мудак) In the second case he walk too confident even for russian policeman[smile] ... As to myself,americans are more confident,frank,communicative and smiling people in our urban crowd, and I always spot them. American accent just confirms it.

  14. Quote:Original post by Talroth Quote:Original post by Krokhin Quote: Going to war over water is equally foolish. Look at the planet 'Earth',... most of it is water. Most of it isn't fit to drink, but it is due to what else is IN the water. Extracting the containments isn't an easy task, but neither is shipping vast amounts of water. And where you are going to get enough energy? Where are you going to get enough energy to build the transportation network to move the vast amounts of water and keep it running? Water is heavy, a metric tonne per cubic metre. Moving it huge distances isn't as easy as some would have it. You're right.Even today we haven't enough energy to distillate sea water for drinking "in place" and not enough energy to transport it too far. Thats why clear water is a very big problem. Quote: People want it, therefore other people go out to get it. I can't recall the last time I said to myself "Damn, I could really use a bit of lutetium orthosilicate!", and I would assume there aren't a whole lot of producers of it. If you are the only person making something, and someone wants that for something else,... Well you get to name your price, and either they bite and buy, you drop your price and try again, or you get to keep your shiny object to yourself. I see. Anyway,let's suppose that you want to make somewhat himself and only himself. If you want to keep monopoly and kill all your competitors,the right way will be to do it ,despite of possiple losses.
  15. Quote:Original post by keinmann It was a similar situation which ousted the mighty Soviets from Afghanistan, in what is often called "Russia's Vietnam". I'm afraid that "American "Russia's Vientam"" will be soon... I don't what it.Honestly. Quote: Like (the psychopathic, but brutally pragmatic) Stalin said, "The death of one man is a tragedy; the death of millions is a statistic.". Yea,they are pragmatics,I'd like to name them all "humanoids" ....
